Academy Events

About Us

Concert promoters and event organisers for Academy Music Group (AMG) - owners and operators of O2 Academy venues in London (Brixton, Islington), Birmingham, Bournemouth, Bristol, Glasgow, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, Newcastle, Sheffield, Oxford, West London's O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire and O2 ABC Glasgow. AMG also manages Bournemouth The Old Fire Station, Liverpool Guild of Student's Mountford Hall and Stanley Theatre and The Forum Hertfordshire in Hatfield.

Currently promoting over 1000 concerts a year, the Academy Events team works across AMG's network of venues staging gigs of all sizes and genres.

Academy Events utilises the diversity of its owned and managed venues and works closely with developing artists, helping them to progress through our venues working towards main room events. We are also fortunate to work with established and heritage artists across all genres. Recently Academy Events has promoted such varied shows as Example, Queens of the Stone Age, Biffy Clyro, Ed Sheeran, Flux Pavilion, Blondie, Tinchy Stryder, NOFX, N-Dubz, Jimmy Eat World, Ben Folds Five, Bring Me The Horizon, Two Door Cinema Club and Paul Weller to name but a few.

Interested in working with us? We'd love to hear from you if you're in a band, are a promoter, involved in your local music scene or want to know how to get a gig at an AMG venue.

Please do get in touch.
